The strong appreciation of Nigeria within Luciano Spalletti was an observation that could make all the difference in the coming season
If Saturday’s quick 3-0 friendly win over Bayern Munich did anything, it made for a really memorable experience for Victor Osman.
The 2021/22 Serie A season will see the center forward enter the most important phase of their new career, and in more ways than one.
His decision to join Napoli last summer, behind a fantastic debut season with the French team LOSC Lille, is the beginning of optimism for the tearful expense that is considered a record for the African transfer. Welcomed with a wave.
It is a sign of the obsession of modern football with the transfer that this status is given based on the size of the fee. For many, the act of aggression immediately shot the 22-year-old in the head.
What happened after the first year – a shock of injuries, contradictions and a confrontation with the coveted – brought to light how rare the wind is at a high level.
The season-long uncertainty around Ginaro Guttierez didn’t help, and the rest of the Napoli attack shot’s good-naturedness meant he was struggling to serve. Apart from his own adaptation to Italian football, his team also needed to adapt.
Enter Luciano Spalletti, a coach who has been accustomed to the best of strikers throughout his career.
While his profile – he has handled Internazionale and AS Roma among Italy’s two biggest parties – made him an attractive fare for club president Oriole de Laurentes anyway, like Eden Zico and Moro Icardi The work has almost certainly been a factor in this
Napoli’s European ambitions may well be established from this point of view, but taking points on expensive targets is not the club’s way – it has to come to fruition when they spend big.
Considering the blossoming of Osimhen, one of the KPIs of Splitty in San Paulo, it will not be far off now, and the 62-year-old has already resigned.
So far in the pre-season, Nigeria International has been brilliant, hitting seven in three matches to signal their intentions before the new season. However, the biggest hint is around the corner, following Splitty’s comments after a thin friendly victory over Pro Versailles.
After former Lille Marcus Man scored the only goal of the game, his manager told Napoli’s official website: “Osman is a striker who has the ability to turn every ball into an opportunity.
“He is a generous athlete who runs a lot and now and then this fast race can cause him. [to make] Some mistakes, but he’s a key player, complete, and we aim a lot at him.
In addition to revealing that Spalty subscribed to the ‘Complaints Sandwich’ feedback system, this brief (but still insightful) statement pointed out perhaps the biggest change in Italian manager Osman’s game. wants to.
For elite level strikers, calm is an important factor in the goal.
It promotes clarity: the ability to hurry – almost subconsciously – to go through infinite solutions and emerge with the right separates the good from the great, and often makes a difference in difficult situations.
While a fixer on his own, Osman goes through his fair share. Of course, every striker does not argue that Napoli’s N9 misses him more than anyone else. The nature of many of these memories, though, is suggestive-these are often examples of techniques that bring it down in a second, a trend of splits linking all of the player’s actions to the action-packed style. Is.
Osimhen’s work rate and willingness to pursue every lost goal is part of his appeal with argument, and part of what makes him such an ideal attacking spear.
Remove it completely, and it will not be anywhere near the line guide. However, the trade-off sometimes is that, when he reaches the goal-scoring areas, he becomes too anxious to be rewarded for his selfless run. Then it is important to find a balance.
In his previous jobs, Spalty created systems that emphasized the need for attackers to return to the defensive landscape.
Not only did it allow the differentiators to remain in key positions after the turnover, but it also reduced the amount of running so that they could reach the last third in attacking the transition.
It seems contradictory to suggest that a footballer can get better by running less.
However, players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lionel Messi have chosen their moments to take careers out of energy conservation, and when they represent extremes, there is a lesson for Osman.
Allowing an athlete to do anything that is contrary to popular belief is not the best way to improve their level of foundation. His transfer fee holds the key to settling him in the right way which could lie in smoothing out his game.
Against Byron, he was significantly less dumb in his workouts, but his completion was an example to the economy of mobility that his manager supported.
Finally, Splatty’s observation of Baba can prove Osman’s creation.
